Open Edition Unframed A4 Prints by Cathy Hansby

The enigmatic and extinct Huia.  Huia are endemic birds of New Zealand.  They're symbolic of nobility and leadership, and of togetherness as they were often seen in breeding pairs. 

Considered a rare treasure by Maori, their tail feathers were highly valued and exchanged among tribes as valuable goods.  In 1901 the Duke of York was gifted a Huia feather to wear in his hat, sparking the demand in Britain for Huia birds and their feathers.  They have since become extinct.
